    • btw, this is exactly how Formula 409 got its name.... ( you know the Cleaner...formula 409) for real they had creation after creation of cleaning mixture 409 times, which they decided was the perfect blend. hence its name that is CRAZY! think about that. i would quit after mixture 201.

  • I call BS on Marion Kay and this video. I made this just like they said and it didn't look like their chicken and didn't come close to KFC. I do have to say it was good but NOT close. I think someone may have been paid to say it was a KFC copy. To say it was almost 90% KFC is BS. I would love to be in that room when they make it, I don't think it will taste like they claim.

Stir continuously until the ingredients are fully blended and the raw flour is lightly browned. This takes a few minutes. The roux should not be darker than peanut butter brown. Gently pour the milk, hot water, and cream, continue stirring until it begins to thicken. Salt and pepper to taste. Allow mixture to simmer until it reaches desired thickness, then turn off the heat and serve.

  • There is no 'LOVE" i the Colonel's recipe. It's Killer instinct, Rage and Failure till you're 65 years old. The Colonel once tried to MURDER a guy. He was always a failure at whatever he did till at age 65 he started making that Chicken and a Gravy which was also GREAT! You have to have those personal trairs and absolutely NO LOVE to come out with that particular flavor. You can still taste Harland's desperation even with that added citrus preservative Corporate added after the bought the 'secret'. To top it off you MUST fry it in a pressure Cooker. That's the way the Colonel did it and that's why it was famous right off the bat. Remember it's Failure, Murderous desperation and Old Age, in that order ! :)

  • Fry that 99x in a Pressure Cooker as the Col had done. His Chicken is always fried in a Pressure Cooker. KFC was brought to Northern VA in the 1960s and was a BIG HIT when I was a kid.. Leave out the fruit (citric acid) and you have actual original Recipe .

  • Wasn't the actual recipe, but not the portions, leaked a few years ago? Some guy was interviewing a descendant of Colonel Sanders and he was being shown old family journals. As the descendant was flipping through pages he passed a recipe. Someone online enhanced the frame and found the herbs and spices. I may be wrong, I heard it on a podcast, so I cant vouch that its fact, but I definitely remember hearing it.
